A popular South Side coffee shop is opening in Hyde Park.

Bridgeport Coffee Company will be opening its third location inside the Hyde Park Art Center café space formerly occupied by Istria Café.

The art center said it hopes to open the café, 5020 S. Cornell Ave., by the end of summer.

Bridgeport Coffee Company roasts its own beans using fair trade, organic products. It was founded in 2004 at 3101 S. Morgan St. Its second location, on Roosevelt Road, will open this year.
